Decades of development have created this invaluable tool for therapists, students and artists that combines Jungian Analytical Psychology, transpersonal approaches, bodywork and art.Guided Drawing is a unique art therapy technique; a creative way to tell our Greater Story. Archetypes are evoked through the mindful repetition of simple abstract shapes, often with both hands and closed eyes. In trusting one's inner guidance the unconscious can reveal painful memories, destructive powers, but also unexpected wisdom and abundant healing.
